    I just found a new destination I want to visit..




    w
    Anyone been there? This place was also the inspiration for the movie Disney/Pixar movie "Up".

    The plate has been isolated for millions of years so the flora and fauna are pretty unique.

    It's easier than it looks. It's a two days hike up, no rope climbing or anything that requires special skills. 6-7 days in total.

    A plan in the next year or two.. now I just need to convince Laura :)

    That's a good 7 pages of trip report up there. Beautiful. Worth checking out for the photos.

    Australasian Carnivorous plant society has some beautiful flora here:

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance !

    That is fascinating. Thanks for sharing it with us.
    To the optimist the glass is half full.
    To the pessimist the glass is half empty.
    To the engineer the glass is simply too big.
